BETA PHOTO: The Flake, Palisades

Description 

meat of the climb is working from the left facing corner crack, up and over the left facing "flake." Once on top of the flake, have a balancy move and then its a run to the top. Great route. One of the must dos at Palisades


Location 

Route is in middle of Overlook Wall. From the climb down behind the Island and the west corridor between the main wall and Island, the route is about 15' from the end of the corridor.


Protection 

Takes pro well and easy to set up a TR. However, if come off around the flake without good pro placed, can easily smack into the ledges below.
